A normal, cheap-o engine stand will work fine. You will need some spare
transmission mounting bolts (or head bolts of the old style), a couple
of nuts for them, and some iron pipe available to cut to length for
spacers/shims for the bolts. The engine stand should have a mounting
plate with an x-shaped set of adjustable arms for bolting on the motor.
I used the bottom two bolts through the adjustable arms as intended, but
put the top bolts directly through the mounting plate.
